Slipped, Tripped Broke His Hip (Or Did He?)

You have commercial insurance for this very scenario. Someone takes a spill on your property and wants to sue. Commercial insurance could keep you from going bankrupt in such a predicament. However, you’re pretty sure you cleared that walk and salted it to keep ice from forming. You don’t recall spilling any water in that area and would’ve promptly put up a "wet floor" sign if you did. And that "victim" seemed to be hamming it up a little. Is this a fraudulent claim?

Red Flags

Fraudulent personal injury claims, on average, can cost $80 billion every year. Here are some red flags that may indicate a fraudster in the works. If the person is making a scene and threatening to sue before getting their "injury" treated, this is a big red flag. This is particularly true if they decline medical attention. A history of multiple lawsuits looks fishy. It’s the same if the "accident" happened away from surveillance cameras. Even if they have a witness, they may be in on it. Don’t be fooled, and don’t be afraid to lawyer up. 

What to do

If you suspect an injury claim to be fraudulent, act quickly. Gather the evidence. Take photos at the scene of an accident. Tell your attorney and insurance agent about your concerns. This will trigger an investigation. If there’s no proof of a serious injury, you will be in the clear. The person who tried to scam you could be facing some stiff penalties, though. Insurance fraud is a Class D felony in New York punishable by up to seven years in prison plus restitution.
